Law student and all round good guy, Harper, suspects that his scheming step-father, Vincent, is responsible for the car crash that sent his mother into a coma. Drowning his sorrows one evening in a seedy L.A whiskey bar, Harper is interrupted by a tough looking redneck called Johnny Ray who offers to 'take care' of his step-dad for the cool sum of US$20,000. Angry, intent on revenge and fuelled by alcohol, Harper agrees to the deal and spends the rest of his evening downing shots with Johnny Ray. The next morning, Harper awakes to the mother of all hangovers with hazy memory of the previous night's events. Answering a knock at the front door, he is surprised to find Johnny Ray and his beautiful but distant girlfriend, Cherry, ready and waiting to drive to Vegas to kill Vincent.

A film that plays with time in a fun way, with great direction by Christoper Smith, fantastic cinematography by Christopher Ross, and really believable acting by Tye Sheridan and the rest of the cast. I loved this film, but I thought it could have been better paced. The film sometimes slows down quite a bit, especially in the first half of the film. I feel that 4-5 minutes could have been cut. But that didn't really hurt the film to much, it was a great ride with a story that was really interestingly told. It's not a new way to tell a story but it's a fun take on the "Pulp fiction" time line story telling. So if you want a really fun ride with great filmmaking then watch Detour! So I'd say watch it and enjoy!
